Josh Clark, Beyond Mobile: Where No Geek Has Gone Before - Mobilism 2013, Day 1, Afternoon, Speaker 8
Everyday technology is hurtling into the realm of science fiction, even magic, with new devices that are as surprising and delightful as they are useful. Developers and designers are running hard to keep up with this warp-speed pace of tech innovation, and for now, mobile devices are at the forefront. But what’s next? Trends are emerging at the hazy edges of the tech universe that hint at the future of computer interfaces, including computers without interfaces at all. Learn how to prepare for that future now.
Designer Josh Clark, author of “Tapworthy,” takes you on an expedition of this final frontier. Learn how phones and other sensor-rich devices have changed how we approach computing, and explore how we can better design for sensors. Learn how more and dumber machines will make us smarter, and how our current work lays the groundwork for a future of social devices. Along the way, you’ll see how games lead the fleet, how robots can help us build our software, why post-PC computing is about far more than phones and tablets, and how you can prepare for this future now, going boldly where no geek has gone before.
